It is commonly known that meditation can result in reduced stress, better health and a feeling of serenity and balance. Studies indicate that in states of meditation we generate a greater amount of slow frequency theta brainwaves. Pulses of sound of a certain frequency activate your own theta brainwaves and lead you easily into soothing and revitalizing meditation.

Vibrations from rhythmic sounds profoundly affect brain activity. In Shamanic practices, drums are employed to transport the Shaman out of his body into other dimensions of reality through the use of steady rhythmic vibrations. Researchers discovered that the fixed rhythmic beat of the drum when struck 4.5 times per second was the key to guiding a Shaman into the deepest levels of meditation. Science later revealed that 4.5 beats per second corresponds to the trance-like condition of Theta brain wave activity.

A Little More on Theta Meditation

As you drift into deep relaxation, you will enter a Theta state where brain activity approached a sleep state, but not quite. The Theta brain state encourages heightened receptivity, pulses of dreamlike imagery, motivation, and memories that had previously retired to the recesses of your brain. Theta meditation is one of a few deep meditation techniques; it's a technique that will expand your minds into boundaries you never thought possible.

Theta resides on the doorstep of your subconscious mind. When monitoring brain activity, researches discovered that Theta meditation is generally affiliated with the deepest levels of meditation. This form of meditation has been used successfully in behavior modification, drug, and alcohol treatment programs. Finally, the Theta state is ideal for super-learning, re-programming your mind, dream recollection, and self-hypnosis.
